The spokesman for the Health Services Department in Bani Walid, Mohammed Abu Neran, has denied recording any cases of measles in the town.

In a press statement Sunday, Neran said that the Health Care Office will cooperate with all the competent authorities to provide the measles vaccine, in the event the Ministry of Health launches a comprehensive campaign.

The Department of Health Services also said that it will intensify its awareness campaigns on measles in all health centres in the next few days.

The Ministry of Health has recently launched a precautionary campaign to contain suspected cases of measles in several areas of Libya.
